Though I'd really rather have the Buick for ride and comfort, I vote for the MERCURY for looks.

I voted or the Mercury, even though it's got the wrong wsw tires.  It almost pushed me to vote for the Buick.

Color aside, Mercury styling is a bit better in '64 but both are very nice cars.

LOL, I noticed the wrong white-walls too, but didn't want to nit-pic.  However, nothing bothers me more than when someone has the wrong white-walls on an old car.  What really bothers me the most is when a car before 1962 has them on.  Sometimes in movies that are supposedly taking place in the 1950's they'll have cars with THIN white-calls, and that make the entire movie incorrect for me, because if it is really taking place in the fifties, thin white-walls weren't possible.

The voting on this one has surprised me.  I really thought the Buick was going to be the vote-getter.  Turns out though that the Mercury (which I voted for) is running away with the votes.  Interesting.

George, I share your surprise! I voted for the Buick, which I thought would run away with this one!

George, I agree with your original thoughts and I too voted for the Mercury totally on looks.

I went with the Buick.  These were like land yachts.  A sight to see.

Land yachts is being polite.  Seems in the 70's each year the cars got longer and longer.  My wife's uncle used get a new car almost every year and he had to keep extending the front of his garage to fit the new car.  His garage looked like it had steps in the front, as he'd extend the wall out for the newest car.

I voted tie leaning slightly to the Buick.  Had to check the tail lights for a tie breaker which caused me to lean toward Buick.
